The use of the coefficient of variation (CV) can be of help.</p> <p>KINDEX (Knowledge Index) is an index that measures how much knowledge is contained in the groups obtained from the SOM neural network: in the case KINDEX reaches the maximum value of 1, each group would consist of records with constant values ​​in all the variables / columns, and each group would be quite distinct from other groups. KINDEX is calculated using the weighted-average CV of variables / columns groups, comparing them to the CV of the variables / columns of the input file before cataloging.</p>
